Signs of whether he still has the ex in mind
Starting a new relationship with someone who has just broken up is by no means easy. Although such a person may claim to be over the breakup, his or her heart may still be healing. But how do you know if he or she is still thinking about the ex (and run for cover in time)?
It can happen to everyone on the other hand, and it is not a fault: it is neither easy nor quick to heal from a love that has impacted our life and our heart. And sometimes it happens that we start a new relationship before we are completely over the previous one.
**Here’s when getting back with an ex is a good idea (if not let it go)**
No guilt, but great risk of ending up burned by it.

They still feel–often
When communication with an ex remains open, an alarm should sound.
Nothing to worry about if it’s casual or if it’s been a really long time since the end of their relationship, but if they’ve been broken up for less than a year and they text each other every week or talk often on social media, there’s a big risk that the wound is still open.
He says they are just friends and refuses to end the relationship? Ask yourself whether you should break away because chances are he is not really ready to start something serious together.

2. Talks about l*i often
Are you having a nice romantic evening and somehow the ex’s name keeps coming up?
The significance of this behavior depends on the context and frequency of such mentions. However, if the ex comes up in 60 percent of your conversations, then it is cause for concern and a clear signal that he or she has unresolved feelings.
3. The ex’s gifts are still around the house (or worn)
Another of the red flags you should not ignore if he has trouble throwing away (or at least putting in a closet) the gifts he received from the ex.
We’re not talking about gifts that have daily use (the umbrella let him have it), but if he can’t stop using that shirt even though it’s all creased by now then it could mean he’s not ready to let it go yet.

Do you still feel strong emotions toward him
Are you particularly happy when they meet by chance? Or is he angry after seeing a picture of the ex with a new partner?
Whether it’s hate or love, if he still feels strong emotions toward the ex, it means he hasn’t gotten over the breakup yet.

5. He likes to talk about the moments they shared together
One of the clearest signs of whether the partner still likes the ex is if he often talks about the moments they shared together.
For example: you decide to go out to dinner and he starts telling you about the time with the ex they tried that great place that is now his favorite restaurant? Or, out of nowhere, does he tell you an anecdote about something they did together?
That period of his life is long gone and should be replaced with building new memorable memories with you.
6. Check his social profiles
Have you caught your partner stalking the ex’s Instagram page several times? Is his profile among the most visited in the history? That’s not good at all.
Let’s not beat around the bush, this is a clear sign that he is still thinking about the ex.
7. He makes comparisons between you
There is (almost) nothing worse than when a partner compares you to his ex. When you hear him make comparisons about the way you dress, your hairstyle, your cooking, then he is probably trying to mold you into the ex he cannot have.
He misses those things and wants to have them back because he still thinks about the ex.
**Fighting is good for the couple (science says so)**
8. He’s still feeling bad about the breakup
It’s normal to be sad about the end of a relationship, but it’s not normal to still feel bad about it when you’re in another, new relationship.
Maybe he is no longer in love, but if he is still feeling bad about what happened between them, then he has not left it behind. In that case, stay away from him.
9. He talks about the ex during intimate moments
One of the most obvious signs that he has not gotten over the end of the former relationship is if he mentions her during your intimate moments. If she is in the past instead of with you during sex or when you are cuddling, the signal could not be more eloquentAnd than so.

10. You feel something is wrong
The sixth sense does exist: if you feel something is wrong, trust your intuition.
If inside you your partner still has eyes for the ex, chances are your gut feeling is right. Take note of it, admit it, and go from there.
